Trump Targeting Affirmative Action

Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Trump's Justice Division is utilizing it's own Civil liberty Department to go after Affirmative Activity. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, talk about affirmative activity. Inform us what you believe in the comment area below.

" The information that broke last night that the Trump Administration would certainly take a fresh appearance at affirmative activity as well as possibly file a claim against institution of higher learnings over admissions choices viewed to victimize candidates based on their race restored a long-simmering debate over that obtains access to the nation's elite universities.

Admissions plans that take race into factor to consider are most pertinent at campuses where there are even more applicants than there are areas in the fresher class. There have to do with 200 colleges in the United States from some 5,000 organizations that approve fewer than half the pupils that apply. To put that into viewpoint, those colleges enroll less compared to 10 percent of the nation's undergraduates.

Despite their tiny piece of the marketplace on the whole, these establishments, from Harvard University to Amherst College to the University of Michigan, play an outsized duty in American college. It's not due to the fact that the education and learning is a lot better at those institutions; it's due to the unmatched network pupils connect to, via the moms and dads of their classmates, alumni and also ultimately when they become alumni themselves. That's why admissions to these places is so valued by lots of students as well as moms and dads."

    Racism is racism even if it seeks to address past racial discrimination.

    • Posted by Kathic, at Reply

      Racism is about shifting people into different categories based on physical appearances like skin color, nose or eye shape or hair. Treating people differently because of their race is racism. It doesn’t matter if the person thinks that one group is better or worse based on these differences. Giving preferential treatment to one group because of their race is the same thing as giving another group negative treatment because of their race. There does not need to be a power disparity between groups for there to be racism.

      Racism : “Discrimination or prejudice towards people based on their race or ethnicity”. Having higher standards for white people to get into university is by definition discrimination towards people based on their race or ethnicity. You don’t know the definition of racism. How is this not racism? Tell me buddy. I’d LOOOOOOOVE to hear.

      @chris dexter cenk went to ivy league schools which is where you find the most legacy students. i’m guessing that most of them where that helped them like the idea of their parents legacy helping them to get in. most of us though don’t like that idea though as you said. it’s just like the way that the only people who like crony capitalism are the ones involved in the crony capitalism.

    If you get lower grades but are ahead of the line because of your race then it’s racial discrimination.

    Terrible news for white women, since most white women are diversity hires. Just look at any big bank or tech company, and you’ll see their ranks are full of white women. They’re totally overrepresented. This is something that I’m assuming TYT will gloss over since, like most people, I didn’t watch the video. They won’t say that since Sessions said he’s going after colleges that “discriminate against white people,” the end result will just be AA benefitting white women even more than it already does.

    Hey white people. You systematically stole all the land in america. Give up all the stolen land then we can talk.

    • Posted by Gutten Aug, at Reply

      We did not steal the land, we conquered it by fighting to death. we used guns knives and all sorts of weapons including disease to kill and dominate the American soil at any cost. Just like the great Vikings did England. European ancestry brought you here to America so say thank you and move on.

    • Posted by Supreme Imperialist, at Reply

      To all those who say white people stole American land and should give it back, I say this:
      I prefer an advanced and wealthy America built by white people (and not by cotton-picking black slaves as Liberals claim to make blacks people believe they have a history (which they don’t)) than an America filled with tribal savages committing genocide against each other, engaging in human sacrifice and skinning each other alive, just like their descendants in Mexican drug cartels do to this day. I’m glad smallpox decimated the inferior Native American population and made room for a more advanced and intellectually superior race to take over.

      Race is not a social construct, society is a racial construct. If white European colonists had completely exterminated the black population of Africa (average IQ of 70) and repopulated the continent with superior white people (average IQ of 100), Africa today would be a tropical paradise of wealthy nations. Think of Australia and how superior white Europeans replaced the savage, uncivilized, dark-skinned Aborigines (average IQ of 60) to build the wealthy and advanced nation that Australia is today. According to the HDI, Australia is the second most developed in the world after Norway, another white country that hopefully remains white after witnessing what non-white immigration did to Sweden.

    • Posted by Bob Bobson, at Reply

      +zarbon700 “Racist” and “sexist” are not mutually exclusive terms. And you just inadvertently supported his claim. If more qualified asians are losing opportunities to white people (or any other demographic) partially due to their race, then the policy is inherently racist.

    Why do Asian people need better grades then Black people to get in to college?

    • Posted by Jolly Cocks, at Reply

      They dont

    • Posted by flightisallright, at Reply

      Basically, all the seats left empty by black people in Advanced placement courses are taken up by Asian students so the competition is more intense among Asians. An Asian who works in college admission also told me that fewer Asians are admitted on sports scholarships or based on other extracurricular activities so it centers around grades more for them.

  19. Posted by Vecheslav Novikov, at Reply

    Any time you hear “Affirmative Action” in this piece, replace it with “Race based admissions practices” and see how you feel.

    • Posted by Vecheslav Novikov, at Reply

      It’s telling. In the end, Cenk says affirmative action actually helps whites and to “be careful what you wish for.” That reveals his assumption that anyone opposing AA must be doing it to help whites. I don’t care, I want people to be rewarded for merit, not race. If that means less whites and more asians gain admission, tough. Work harder.

    • Posted by Vecheslav Novikov, at Reply

      Zarbon, that’s fine. If Asians work harder, they deserve it more. Not everyone cares about race, ok?

    • Posted by VotelessOrc497, at Reply

      So their stopping racism?

  20. Posted by R Z, at Reply

    Why should race be even a consideration in the admission process? Shouldn’t it be just purely based on merits such as grades, extracurriculars, and references?

    • Posted by Chris Hakala, at Reply

      R Z I’ve never seen a study that suggests that blacks have a lower graduation rate than whites after they make it into college.
      Colleges have plenty of resources, including tutoring, to ensure that students succeed.

      The fact of the matter is that the socioeconomic problems that require affirmative action (discrimination in the job market, discrimination by the police, under-funding of schools and other public infrastructure, problems such as lead contamination in Flint and East Chicago that are allowed to fester simply because the community is mostly minority, etc), affirmative action needs to remain in effect for at least a generation.
